In April 1937, The Southern Cross became the official newspaper of the Diocese of San Diego (which included the California counties of San Diego, Imperial, Riverside, and San Bernardino until 1978 when the diocese was restructured to encompass Imperial and San Diego counties). Southern Cross articles highlight news and activities that impact parishioners, including coverage of local Catholic elementary and high schools, as well as the University of San Diego, local commentary on city, county and state politics, Catholic youth programs, and accolades for local individuals connected to the diocese. The newspaper also covers the impact on the diocesan community and their reaction to state, national and world Catholic news. For example, articles include reporting on local Catholic support for the United Farm Workers union, civil rights issues in the diocese, and local Catholic charitable work for immigrants and the elderly.
